Harwichport, Happiest Seaside Town

From Coastal Living, as voted on by readers:

"Quiet, charming, and nostalgic: That's the tone struck in this upscale village of 1,644 locals along Cape Cod's southern shore. "The Port," as it's known, has been the home of seamen and fishermen since before the American Revolution, and sea captains' homes still dot the streets.

Summers in Harwich Port, one of seven villages in the city of Harwich, are distinctly old-fashioned, with music strolls, band concerts, and crafts and art guild shows livening the scene, while the warm waters of Nantucket Sound offer carefree swimming. Nearby Red River Beach is a favorite with easy access for boaters, plus ice-cream truck visits."

That's a nice recognition from coastal living.

And most of the towns on the cape do have those same attributes! In the summer, you can visit a different town each nite for a free band concert, check local listings.

Our first two holidays on the Cape were spent in Harwich Port about 40 years ago. We spent many hours with our families and friends on Red River Beach. For some reason we didn't often go to the beach at the bottom of Bank Street.
